your time • nature • magic of singing

— Jean Sibelius

Oma Aika

"You can only get to know yourself when you're alone with yourself," says my uncle. "I go into the woods," he continues, "to listen to the silence." "Maybe you, too, have to find out where your silence is."

-Ruhe, bitte. Das Magazin.

Oma aika, your own time, is important for us Finns. It's downtime, solitude, silence, all combined. Oma aika is when you are alone, doing what You want to do. Sing, walk through the forest, chop wood, read, write, climb to the nearest mountain... Oma aika is a moment for rest, a moment when thoughts fly and the mind wanders, a moment of song.

The tradition of singing in the nature, with the nature and to the nature falls back hundreds of years in Finland. Luontolaulu (nature song/nature singing) leads you into the culture of nature and music through your own experience. Be prepared to get refreshed, restored and inspired!

 
 

Peace of Nature

Luontolaulu dives deep into the quiet, empowering sounds, into the natural accoustics, to lullabies and whispering trees, to the song of nature.

When words are left out, the sound and the feeling take over.

Luontolaulu has evolved from tradition and daily experiences. My roots are in folk music and improvisation. I have always loved simple malodies and singing without lyrics. When words are left out, the sound and the feeling take over. The pressures of culture and language disappear, the sounds connect and open new channels for communication with ourself and with the world around us. Simple melodies invite us into conversations, we can add words and create songs that will give us strength, joy and comfort in our daily endeavors.

Happy to have you here, welcome!

Magic of Singing

Luontolaulu is an extension to breathing. It only requires this moment.

To be present.

to hear.

To breathe.

To let the voice ring.

To feel the song resonating in the body and in the nature.
